Orland Park Public Library Calls Police 5 Times on Critics but Fails to Report Sex Offenders

What happened to me when I challenged the library's policy of providing free pornography on public computers.

3. November 4th, 2013 Kevin DuJan and I went to the library to hand out flyers alerting patrons to the dangers of unfiltered computers and the number of sex crimes that occurred in the library over the last decade.

While we were there, news crews showed up to find out what the fuss was all about (and they all proceeded to butcher the story until it was unrecognizable.) While handing out flyers, Weimar and Bridget Bittman, library spokesperson, demanded we leave the premises “immediately” because practicing actual free speech is against library policy. When we refused to leave, they called the police for help.

People handing out flyers were threatening enough to call 911 but on October 28, 2010 a teenager rubbing his genitals in front of a child was not enough of a threatening situation to call the police.

Moral relativists are unable to draw any lines. The end result is that they side with public wankers over suburban moms.

I'm not sure why our comments were reported and removed. Anyone who thinks the police should be involved over a satirical cartoon belongs in Syria.

I think we've been visited by "Laura" from the Patch under a new name. Her only defense of this horrible policy and the behavior of this library board is to attack the messenger's actions to try to deflect attention from the issue, which is unfiltered pornography, both legal and illegal (without filters there's no way to stop that) in a library where children can be exposed to it, or encounter adults who have been excited by it. The police reports and internal reports tell the story. But you won't hear "No Surprise" say anything about that ridiculous and dangerous situation.

It's not dangerous.

No Surprise, I understand your need to focus on the messenger so as to blunt the message. That's fine. Fortunately, victims of OPPL policy, Linda Zec comes to mind, have provided very specific and detailed facts that must be addressed by the Village of Orland Park so as to minimize the potential for liability, among other things. No doubt in my mind they will care not a whit about your personal attacks. The story is bigger than Megan and Kevin now. It's now the Mayor, and Linda, and the librarians she said might be willing soon to speak out about this. You won't be about to attack them all, No Surprise, and pretty soon this matter will be resolved one way or another. If the porn gets kicked out of the library, right in the very backyard of the ALA where ALA showed up to propagandize, that will spell the beginning of the end of the ALA's ability to mislead local populations about library law and the case they lost big in the US Supreme Court.

The police have murders, man slaughter, drunk driving, child abuse, theft, and other crucial issues to attend to. The board should be embarrassed to expect police to devote their time to Megan.
